Did you know that the checkered seconds print running around the outside of the dial is the exact checkered markings off the side of a British Fire Engine. Or that the back of our seconds hand was shaped like a firefighter axe head and the front of the hand is inspired by the chime of a fire bell? Or that we have lightly tinted the glass on each of our watches blue in tribute of William Wood’s 25 years service on the Blue Watch. Every design decision we have taken has a purpose.
Our Valiant Collection comes with a C3 grade Super-LumiNova disc that sits below the sandwich dial. The lume disc sat below the dial glows through the cut-out indices giving you clear time visibility in the darkest hour. We have also a produced a curved dial and hands that creates and added layer of depth when looking at your watch through the double double sapphire crystal.
We take an original 1920’s British brass firefighter’s helmet worn by firefighters 100 years ago, and melt it down into our watch crowns. The result is a wonderful combination of old brass versus modern stainless steel. The helmets are all sourced from the UK and all craftsmanship to is carried out in the heart of London.
